I’m hearing some calls and even organized protests to “re-open” the US economy.  A short article with some simple math about the situation in the UK.  It’s pretty much the same as for the US.  Multiply by about 5 to get comparable US numbers.  Cut to the chase for people who don’t want to read: about 3m dead.  This is from a professor of infectious diseases at Harvard.

No matter how you crunch the numbers, this pandemic is only just getting started
